Auntie Anne's At-Home Baking Kit Review and GIVEAWAY

I love soft baked pretzels. There is just something so special about a big, warm soft, delicious pretzel. And Auntie Anne's is the quintessence of quality when to comes to pretzels.

Unfortunately for me, however, I live nowhere near an Auntie Anne's location. So I have far too long been deprived of the excellence of Auntie Anne's Soft Pretzels.

Thankfully, Auntie Anne's understands how depressing that is, and that is why they created the At-Home Baking Kits.

Now anyone can have the wonderful quality of Auntie Anne's Pretzels baked fresh in their own home. Better yet, these awesome kits are not only affordable, but also available in grocery stores nationwide.

I did not expect to be able to get a kit this good from my local store, but at least 2 stores within a mile or two of my house sell these kits. Now I can enjoy the wonderful Auntie Anne's recipes any time I want.

These are not your ordinary soft pretzels, the flavors are so special. Apple Cinnamon(the one I tried) is so delicious, and they also have Gingerbread and of course Original.

Everything you need is included in this kit(except water and cooking spray). And the directions are clear and very easy to follow.

If there is any negative aspect, it would be that you have to let the dough rise for 30 minutes, and you'll want to eat them without waiting. That is true of any dough, and these are so worth the wait.

My son helped me make these, and he had so much fun(he is autistic and would not taste one). Everyone that tasted one LOVED it. My daughter(14 months) ate nearly a whole one, and I ate more than I care to admit.

These are some of the best pretzels I have ever had, and one of the best things I have ever made myself(although mine did not look as aesthetically pleasing as they could have).

These At-Home Baking Kits are such a fun baking project to do as a family, especially since you can do them as tradition twists or as sticks(or any shape you want) or make into other recipes provided in the kit.

It is a nice addition or variation to the standard holiday cookies and such. Gingerbread pretzel men sounds like a super fun idea.

The kits would make awesome gifts for anyone on your list(who doesn't love soft pretzels?), and so would the product itself. Instead of gifting cookies, try these in regular or different shapes. I bet the recipient will really appreciate the originality and variety because they are likely to receive tons of cookies.

What about using them to make letters and spell out a word or phrase? "Happy Holidays", how perfect would that be?

No matter how you utilize these fabulous At-Home Baking kits this year, you will be so glad you did, and so will those who are lucky enough to be a part of the fun.

And in the spirit of giving, Andrea's World and Auntie Anne's is giving away one of these wonderful Apple Cinnamon At-Home Baking Kits to one lucky follower. Enter below. Good luck.

  3. I'd let my teenage daughter decide what shape to make them. Things like these help keep her interested in cooking and baking.

  4. I'd definitely have my 3 year old daughter "help" me lol maybe I could let her shape them into hearts instead of a pretzel? :)

  5. I would make the traditional pretzel shaped pretzels. Love these!

  6. It would make a great activity for my children and I. We would have a lot of fun planning our "pretzel" day.

  7. Try making my first pretzel for my bf in the shape of a heart!

  8. i am in college; so i would wait until xmas break (2 weeks) and make them with him for a nice after-dinner treat!
